I know some of you start early on your planning and making your Christmas cards so here is my first Christmas card of the season. This card ended up being my submission for a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator card exchange I participated in as well as my card for my Ink and Sparkle Stampers demonstrator team meeting this month. The tutorial is available further down this post and you can take a peek at my FaceBook Live for this card if you’d like as well. I decided to use the Brushstroke Specialty Designer Series paper from the new Annual Catalogue as I suspect it is a easily missed item on page 139. It is as beautiful paper with a slight shimmer to it and I would say it is a bit thinner than other Designer Series Papers. It’s strong enough to take Multipurpose Liquid Glue without buckling and it comes in 3 very pretty colours: Night of Navy, Blushing Bride and Soft Succulent. Take a look see!
The other item I used in today’s project is the Stamparatus. I don’t often say to you that “you need this” but this time I’m going to say it! It allowed me to get a repeated re-inking of the stamp and positioning it perfectly on the card stock. Secondly, if you are doing multiple cards, it is such a time-saver as you change out your card stock and repeatedly get a perfect placement for your stamping on the project. You should definitely add it to an upcoming order if you don’t have one!
